Central Island Division of Family Practice - Making health care better together

The Central Island Division of Family Practice, formed in 2019 through a union of the Oceanside and Port Alberni Divisions, is a local non-profit society of community-based primary care physicians and nurse practitioners based in Central Vancouver Island, with our area stretching South from Nanoose Bay all the way up to Bowser and all of the communities in between, from the East Coast of Vancouver Island right to the West Coast. Whilst our communities are diverse, the Division gives local primary care providers an opportunity to work collaboratively with Island Health, the FPSC, and the Ministry of Health to identify health care needs in the local community and develop solutions to meet those needs.

Our members work together to increase family practitioner influence on health care delivery in our region, enhance professional satisfaction to general practitioners and nurse practitioners, and improve patient care in our area.

Looking for a Primary Care Provider? 

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) can connect patients without a primary care practitioner to physicians or nurse practitioners that are accepting patients using the Health Connect Registry (HCR).  Patients can also call 8-1-1 to self-register over the phone.
